The Changing Face of Bristol Palin

May 5, 2011
Bristol Palin, daughter of one-time Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, stepped out in New York recently with a drastic new look that's sparking speculation she’s had plastic surgery.

The former Dancing With the Stars contestant appeared at a abstinence charity event in New York on Tuesday looking completely unrecognizable. It’s like she’s a totally different person. The 20-year-old’s once chubby, round face appears has dramatically changed shape. Her face is now heart-shaped and her jaw and cheeks are more pronounced. It’s like she’s had a face transplant. At the same time her body shape appears to be unchanged, ruling out the idea that Palin’s new looks are the result of weight loss.

New York plastic surgeon Dr. Norman M. Rowe believes the young single mother has gone under the knife. He told the New York Daily News, “The tip of her nose is smaller and more feminine. This gives a less bulbous look that was present before. The bridge of the nose also appears lower. It's not as wide as it previously appeared.” Rowe also believes Palin may have undergone a chin implant and a rhinoplasty, which is plastic surgery lingo for nose job.

Comparing a photo of Bristol Palin this week and one year ago, it’s obvious something has changed.
